Take me there
Butron Castle, Basque Country, Spain. This castle is the world's largest existing medieval castle in the world. It fell into disuse and was later renovated and opened to the public. This proved to be unsuccessful and the building was closed to visitors although the grounds remained open. In November 2005 the building was purchased by INBISA (Grupo Empresarial) for 1,629,743 euros but it remains under the general protection of Spanish law 16/1985 in respect of historic buildings in Spain.

Strahov Library, Prague. Libraries and museums would be the top of my list in all countries.
Petra, hidden in a deep gorge in Jordan, was once described as "the rose red city half as old as time." Yet it is still young compared to neighboring Iron Age settlements. Whereas the façade of its famous Treasury was carved some two thousand years ago, archaeologist Thomas E. Levy has been working in the nearby Wadi Faynan, which was a center of copper mining, on a practically industrial scale, a thousand years earlier still.
